Gorgeous vintage-inspired speakeasy located up a hidden stairwell accessed through a bank vault door at the back of an innocuous burger joint. It's the only one like it in NYC! Once inside, guests are treated to plush velvet furniture, swing music and a tower of handmade goodies. Sandwiches are open-faced, unusual for NYC, but what makes this tea room unlike any other in North America is that only single-estate teas from India are served. No blends, flavors or teas from any other country. The breadth of beautiful Indian teas is more than enough to savor, sip by sip, in a place that feels like a step back in time.
Great experience. Take a step away from the chaos of the city for a victorian inspired tea service. The setting is very cozy and appropriate. The Indian teas we tried were all top notch and the food was incredible. Excellent value, and would love to return with more friends.
